Hi again! This week I will wrap up my Korean vacation, but I have a few more outfit posts to share with you before I do! We had so much fun in Korea and although it’s nice to be home, my husband and I both enjoy exploring the world together. It is always fun to explore new places together. Life is so much fun when you get to experience life with your best friend by your side! As you know our trip included a lot of shopping, but on this day (in the pictures) we explored the middle of Seoul, where the old world meets the new! We toured the Palace, which is located in The National Folk Museum of South Korea. You have an ancient palace, rich in history, lush with plants and tress, architecture and paintings that make designers weak in their knees, lined with cobblestone paths. But if you stop and pause for just a moment you will hear cars honking and you will see a bustling city just beyond the walls. When looking beyond the Palace’s walls, the backdrop is modern day Korea, with soaring high rises, new technology and heavy traffic. It was almost like being transported back in time and and seeing into the future. It was fun to see how this city and culture has progressed over time.
We also visited the Seoul, World Cup Stadium. My love for fashion and design, is just as strong as my husbands love for Soccer. We had so much fun exploring the Stadium. We were able to go down on the field, enter the field where the players do, visit their locker room and practice room. We couldn’t believe that we were able to go all around the stadium by ourselves! My husband and our sister-in-law Kristen (also a soccer player) had so much fun in the stadium, as did Scot and I.
This day was packed, because that evening we went to Nam-san Tower too! We enjoyed looking out over the entire city of Seoul, while eating ice cream cones..lol. I ate so much good food while in Korea and I didn’t follow any strict eating rules like I do at home, so it was fun not only to explore the culture by foot, but also by taste! Anywho, Nam-san Tower if you have never heard about it, it’s a tower that you can see from almost anywhere in Seoul on a clear day, because of its height. Nam-san Tower reminds me of the make-out hill everyone had in high school. Everyone is holding hands and walking around with there lover. My favorite part of Nam-san Tower is the tradition of the locks. There are thousands of locks attached to the fences! Check out my Instagram, to see what I am talking about. The meaning behind the locks is the promise of endless love! How romantic, right? Since forever ago, there was a story that if lovers make a wish at a shrine at Nam-San it comes true! Since that this place has become a symbol of promising and everlasting love for couples, by hanging their lock together, hence why its so romantic! I am so mad that my husband and I didn’t leave a lock there! We should have, because who knows if we will ever be back.
Hope you enjoy our pictures!
